Sideloading - Installing Android APK

On Android it is possible to install iViewer directly via a download from our website, bypassing the Google Play store. This is called 'Sideloading', and to get started you will need to enable some options in your Android settings.

From your smartphone or tablet running Android 4.0 or higher, go to Settings, scroll down to Security, and select Unknown sources. Selecting this option will allow you to install apps outside of the Google Play store. Depending on your device, you can also choose to be warned before installing harmful apps. This can be enabled by selecting the Verify apps option in the Security settings.

The next step will be finding an Android package file, also known as an APK, which is the way Android apps are distributed and installed.

iViewer APK files can be found on our website here: iViewer Download History

Simply visit the above URL on your Android device to download the iViewer version you want to install, then select it from your downloads list to begin the installation process.
